I absolutely love the new Weight Watchers commercials. Some, however, have criticized them feeling apparently that they make fun of the obese. Truthfully, I don’t see it that way. These ads are real to me.
If you haven’t seen them I really recommend watching them. They had a series of ads about “Help with the Hard Part.”
This one “If You’re Happy” sings about how we eat in response to emotion. If you’re happy, have a snack or if you’re sad or if you’re stressed or if you’re lonely….
Then, there is the one titled, “My Butt” which, once again, I loved:
Or, this one touting Weight Watchers new (paid) personal coaching option. I loved the last shot in this video…
Or this Christmas video about holiday eating featuring The Holderness Family. This is obviously meant to be a parody, which some of those commenting apparently missed….
Truthfully, these videos would be far more likely to cause me to look into Weight Watchers than a Jessica Simpson (or other celebrity) commercial.
Weight Watchers sometimes seems to me to be mired in the past and just a bit old-fashioned and technologically backward. For once, they have commercials that seem like something from this millennium.
